The family of a Mexican national allegedly shot and killed by an unidentified U.S. Border Patrol agent is suing the federal government.
The family of Juan Pablo Peréz Santillán claims he was standing on the Mexican side of the U.S.-Mexico border when he was shot the morning of July 7, 2012. Peréz Santillán was not armed, his family states in the lawsuit.
The incident happened near the Veterans International Bridge in Brownsville.
The lawsuit is filed by Ernestina Cazares Santillan, the mother of Juan Pablo, and Amada Carolina Martinez Morales, the mother of Juan Pablos children.
Named in the lawsuit are the unidentified U.S. Border Patrol agent, the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, The U.S. Border Patrol, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Justice. The lawsuit was filed Friday.
The U.S. Border Patrol said a group of undocumented immigrants pelted rocks at the agents and one agent fired his weapon in self defense, but did not hit anyone. About the same time, just south of that location, an agent saw a man pointing a weapon at him and fired.

Who do American victims sue for all the crimes committed by the illegal scum who run over the border after contributing their bit of “diversity” to the crime statistics?
Speaking of diversity in crime, there’s been yet another elderly woman attacked and raped and her husband tied up, attacked, amd robbed in their own home in Kansas City MO. The animal who did this is described as a “teen”, 18yo. He is one Tony Putman, and he’s not Amish.
This follows the attack against the elderly couple in Oklahoma in which the husband, a veteran, was beaten, and his wife raped and killed by a 14 yo “Amish”. These animals have no place in society and killing is too good for them. I am absolutely sick over this.
Mexicans should learn to stay at least 10 miles back from the border. I know I do.
Exactly. A Mexican citizen standing on Mexican territory has no constitutional rights here.
Most people with an IQ above tap water understand that when you and
your associates throw rocks at people with guns you risk dying.
In this case stupid was fatal.
I don't care who the target is, as far as I'm concerned it's an act of war or at least attempted murder.
Let you are I are any FR from America,start throwing rocks at Mexico border agents and watch how fast they lock us up and watch how fast Mexico border agents sue Americans, should they suffer any harm by throwing of tocks by Americans directed at Mexico border agents.
